This is the message we received from our team lead Dre about regarding the matter. "Yall really came through for a sweet soul in need! We were able to deliver a mini fridge, twin bed frame, cat supies, cleaning supplies, $180!!!, and we have nebulizers coming in. Our new friend is ready to "play it forward" and was overjoyed by the support! She says she wants to help with anything she can and said "I love my new bed now, now I feel like a real person" enjoy this pic of Nick Nick the cat (who we got lots of food and litter to and will connect with SPCA assistance program) as a big thanks from the homie over west! She is already helping connect others to services since we could give her some support!"
Thank you all once again. Let us always stand in solidarity with folks all throughout the city! Take care --
